Baller Than_Bogan Posted August 23, 2011 Baller Share Posted August 23, 2011 My wife is not a serious skier, but has fun when she can make time to do it. She can do some damage in the mini-course and has some aspirations to run the real thing at some point. Her biggest problem is that she sometimes buries the tip on the take-off and then uses a ton more strength than necessary and/or eats a lot of lake. We're working on technique, but she kind of learned to just overpower it and it will take some time to learn a different way. She's on an OLD ski, and I was thinking a more modern "beginner to intermediate" slalom ski might help her in all sorts of ways. And the ones with slighter wider forebody seem like they'd be a big help on the take-off. Anybody have a favorite ski in this category? If there are various choices, I'd lean toward less expensive. She isn't serious and doesn't plan to become serious -- I just want her to consistently have fun out there. Less water into the sinuses and a few more buoys would both be great!
